As councils across Wales face difficult budget decisions, a group of young people in the capital are calling for their services to be protected.
Cardiff Council's budget won't be set until the end of February - but today youngsters have been explaining why the support they get is so important.
In a statement Cardiff Council said they have invited members of the Cardiff Youth Council to take part in a consultation on the budget proposals. They added that their budget will be finalised at the end of next month.
